Highland grey beard's recent activity

  • C’mon, get real. Of course his initial response was amusing. This thread has become so adsurd that it demanded a light hearted response, even if arguably borderline.
  • Replied in Q newbie
    I echo all of the above. I now shoot in RAW only and find that I have to drawback on sharpening the lens/sensor combination is so good. You can crop to a 50mm equivalent and still get good quality ...
  • I have the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 and am well satisfied but cannot compare with the Sigma. As to MP and technique. As with the D800/810 good hand holding technique and shutter speed 2xFL as a minimum. I ...
  • I really must rush out tonight and do this. Trouble is sea looks a bit rough at the moment and we don’t get many boats past here. However much more pressing problem of finding fruit in Tesco that ...
  • Six weeks from Grays of Westminster and they are not a small dealer.
  • Agreed. I use the Leica one. Works perfectly.
  • Mike I am away from home at the moment so cannot check precisely but I am just about to pay the credit card bill upon which the prepayment is recorded so I guess that puts it at about a month give ...
  • I certainly fall into the category of grumpy old man and have much sympathy with your thoughts. Sadly the internet age has brought the I’ll post because I can mentality or I’m so full of myself ...
  • Sure you can fire away at f/22 and hopefully get enough DoF but if you want to get the maximum out of the D850 sensor - or in my experience the D800 sensor - you do need to use the sweet spot of ...
  • 2) Yes 3) The settings are: LCD: Only the LCD is in use Auto: LCD on but goes off with eye sensor when EVF is on. EVF Extended: EVF in photography mode, LCD for playback and menu EVF: EVF only
  • OK that means you are in video mode in the viewfinder - you should see a video camera to the left of it. Just press the centre button in the four way pad to cycle through the different LCD modes.
  • I am not sure about a grey circle. To the left of the battery indicator you get a white rectangle with a black circle in the centre and the rectangle has (()) on either side. This indicates OiS on ...
  • Ah, understood. Best not discuss these things with the distaff side! As my son said to my wife, "If you knew what Dad spends on his photography you would not hesitate when out clothes shopping". :-D
  • I think the “issue” really isn’t an issue at all. Any “degradation” has to be seen in terms of the  excellent IQ available. Leica are being ultra cautious in their advice whereas other ...
  • Certainly the Leica forum has had reports of sensor dust but they have been few and far between. I am not aware of anyone complaining that Leica would not deal with it free of charge. I am sure it ...
  • Yorkshire strikes again! In the Highlands it is Monday before my AP arrives in the post - as with the delivery of my ordered D850 I can wait!
  • Agreed. In my experience there are times when you need  the 28mm but more frequently I do find I am cropping to the final product. Even so I would not be without the possibility of exploiting the ...

    Gosh, I don't think I have seen so many knickers in so many twists in a long time! 'Laws', 'rules' - as far as I can see this is guidance. I see even a lawyer has got in on the act. This is not ...
  • On reading again I accept what you say about the article in that it couples FL and moving your position not simply changing FL. I think I was confusing myself with the compression effect of a ...
  • I appreciate you being nice to me. You may know what the right answer is but if so why point me to an article which confirms my original comment that if you crop an image taken with a 28mm lens ...
